Areas of application:

Lactulose is a gentle yet effective laxative

Lactulose is a well-known laxative with more than 40 years' long safety record. The lactulose is appreciated for its gentle and natural yet effective way of action, comprising prebiotic, osmotic and peristalsis-activating properties.

Lactulose is practically not absorbed by the digestive system and has a positive effect on the bacterial flora of the intestines. There are no major known side effects from using Lactulose.

Lactulose in treatment of portal-systemic encephalopathy

Due to its detoxifying properties, Lactulose is useful in treatment of the hyperammonemia caused by portal-systemic encephalopathy (PSE). The increased biomasses inhibit the formation of blood ammonia. Lactulose promotes the diffusion of ammonia from the blood into the intestinal lumen and an eventual excretion from the body with the stool.

Lactulose as a food and feed ingredient

Lactulose is also a food and feed ingredient offering beneficial health benefits on digestive health. Lactulose is recognized by its digestive qualities by EFSA (European Food Safety Authorities) and MFDS (Ministry of Food and Drug Safety of Korea). It works as a prebiotic within the colonic microflora, increasing a number of bifidobacteria and optimizing a function of the intestinal tract by regulating intestinal transit.
